It seems to run OziExplorer route66 and raster maps has anyone tried one out yet it seems to be a good unit do do both the city and bush tracks with all the mapping included apart from the horrid blue surround it looks good .

The supplier in Adelaide said he will get them in next week at $990

You can buy a very similar unit from ebay (from an Aussie seller) for just over $200 minus the maps which retail for about the same, so the whole setup would be half the cost. Plus the ebay units have bluetooth capability, external antenna connection, reverse camera connection and use a freely available Nokia battery.

It works fine. If you need more info on how to set up check out the Patrol forum:

Looking at the product data, it's just another in the long line of gps solutions.
Nothing jumps out at you to say this is a better product and at the reported price it would have to have something better than the competition.
The WQVGA screen is the same as most others so nothing special there.

Have a look at posts 58477 and 58422. The Hema Navigator is apparently a MIO 520 in disguise. There are links on these posts giving instructions as to how to 'crack' this GPS to give it the same functionality as the Hema for a third of the price.
Mike.
